COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Session Black is short, dark and totally drinkable. The initial tastes are a subtle pairing of caramel and chocolate malt flavors with precise hopping to provide an elegant citrus background to the delicate finish of dark cocoa.

dark brown cola color with a small tan head. smells and tastes like a brown version of the regular session... black barley, cocoa, raisins (without the sugar), some coffee/nuttiness and a dry roasty finish. it even has some grapefruit in there... just like it’s older brother. medium bodied with an extremely easy to drink creamy texture. 7/3/7/4/15/3.6

llcooldave (1118) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - SEP 6, 2009
Musky cardboard aroma. Not really that black looking, almost brown leather actually. Slight roasted malt flavor with coffee aftertaste. I’ve had better Schwartz biers but at least this one was smooth and drinkable.

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - SEP 5, 2009
Lightly roasted raisin nose. Blackish/brown color with deep ruby hue, medium frothy tan head. Subtle dark chocolate sprinkle sweetness, solid clean bitterness provides balance. Big carbonation, medium body, clean crisp chocolate finish. Well crafted beer with complexity, the chocolate notes are extremely subtle and beer comes across as refreshing.

drowland (6169) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2009
A cute little bottle fondled over to me by Cavie and poured into a pint glass. The pour is dark brown with a tiny white head on top. The aroma is big sweet lager all the way with touches of roast. The entry is suprisingly sweet and finishes with plenty of roasty dryness. As I went through it I could swear I kept tasting cinnamon as well. The body is light and the mouthfeel is smooth and carbonated to go down easy.

caramel and tar hit the deck .. . easy to drink, even for a golliwog .. . not much foam, but a good session black lager, for some odd reason.. . the warm up brew for the F.S revolution#9 anniversary party! ..

Bottle from Liquid Solutions. Pours a rather darkish ruby with a slim beige head. Aromas of dark malt and chocolate. Medium body with firm carbonation. There’s some light fruit beneath the dark malt and chocolate. Rather refreshing. Good drink. Finishes towards bitter.
